School Partnership Selection & Vetting Process:
HVK Children’s Foundation accomplishes its goals of providing school-based programs by working in already existing schools. Partner schools are private by nature due to its ownership and operation by individuals or cooperation (churches, non-profit etc.) but not owned by the Government of Liberia (GoL).
Partner schools refer new schools or interested schools write to organization stating need ( max 2 schools yearly after 2021)
Interested school fills out a HVK Children’s Foundation needs assessment which verify key needs at the school in relation to HVK Children’s Foundation mission
We collect financial and yearly enrollment information about the school
We conduct a spot observation by visiting the school environment to meet Principal and teachers
HVK Children’s Foundation holds a presentation with the school’s administration to go over key terms and conditions, and mission of the organization.
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by both parties
